North, South and East Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnerships are jointly commissioning a specialist, therapeutic service for children under 13 years of age who are experiencing or have previously experienced child sexual abuse and/or exploitation. This is a new service and although there are difficulties in establishing an estimate of the number of children affected, statistics indicate that instances for age groups under 13 years old are significantly increasing. Whole family recovery is recommended and it is important that non-abusive family members have access to support themselves and are involved in the process of recovery for their children.
